Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

I second Gwendy's post in reference to Crumb's cakes... absolutely gorgeous! Especially the second one - I would never be able to cut into it and find out how delicious it is, I'd just sit in front of it admiring its beauty.

Wow, these are impressive to say the least. Is is possible to order cakes off you directly?
Thanks for the compliments! Sorry, I only make them for family and friends - it's a time issue

Do you have a website?
Yes - click on my signature. Then there's the blog (www.back-art.ch/blog) with some recipes and techniques, but it's mostly in German - ask me if you want a translation of any particular recipe.

Dark, sensuous chocolate cake, with mascarpone/cream and blackberry jam filling - I'm sure you'd be tempted... (I can always make another one )

Here's the link to that recipe (in German); I'll put a translation on the blog if requested.

Awwwww....all these pics are making my mouth open...saliva.... drooling...slurp..slurp!!! They all look super yummy!!

Can you all PLEASE also include in a link or recipe?
Pretty pleeeeeasseeee!!

Roti canai? Yumm...Char Siu? Double YUMMM!
How / where??

The roti canai recipe link is given near the beginning of the thread, Rona.

A Malaysian acquaintance here taught me how to make 'char siu' (Chinese-style sweet barbequed pork):

Marinate overnight a chunk of pork belly or 'some other cut' in salt, soy sauce, sugar, 5-spice powder and a bit of Chinese wine (optional). Then roast in a 185 degrees C oven for 20-30 minutes or BBQ over glowing coals, basting the marinade over it once or twice in between.

Other stuff I've made (if you want a recipe, just ask):
mashed banana fritters (panfried kuih kodok), olive bread, cantucci (biscotti), chicken curry puffs

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Here's another recipe for "char siu" and I've tried it out and it's yummy even without all the ingredients. The recipe says secret ingredient being maltose (sugar from malt?) Check it out: http://rasamalaysia.com/bbq-pork-recipe-char-siu/

The above blog is really good for other Chinese/Malaysian/Asian recipes too.

Thanks, Argus/WorldTraveller.

I have no idea how to 'thank' that I see so many do under the next line of the post -can't find the link/click or whatever it's called.

Just looking at food makes me happy **grins like an idiot** even if I can't taste it or try it yet (due to lack of ingredients at the moment).

Keep them coming!!!

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Judging from the cooking expertise here, I think one of you happens to by my classmate back in 1993, in Singapore hmmmm. Then in that case, if you read this, can you please invite me over for dinner.

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

An interesting idea I saw the other day, for individual little home made breads ..... baked in small clay flower pots (new ones obviously, not them kakky old ones in the garden shed..hahaha)...... and set beside each dinner plate .....

I gonna try that - baked in the wood Kacheloffen - then I photo them for here ... maybe.... if my bread behaves itself.....

I`m SO impressed with you guys baking and cooking!!!!!

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

It's imposible to apreciate its taste in the photo, but it was superb. It's my firt swiss style Kürbis suppe. In the paste I used to bake the pumpkin and then to grind it with a bit of cream (It tastes very good too), but today I've tried to prepare it with potatoes, onions and mago in a pot with vegetables stock and then add the cream and some spcies (I found the recipe on the Internet) and a ginger cookie. Simply delicious:

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

My pics are not nearly so elegant and I am rather a sloppy baker. However, I have made a fig almond frangipanne and a fig clafoutis with quark.
